IASTED Fake Conferences

The IASTED Conferences are all-fake conferences. Editors of IASTED fake conferences do not know that they are included in the volumes as Editors by IASTED.
Nobody read the Proceedings before publishing.
For example see this:

  1. A New Fake, Junk, Bogus Conference of IASTED is going to be held in Crete, greece. The congressman Mr. Pericles Bourkas did not check any paper and any abstract and gave acceptance to any junk paper in IASTED volume.
    Impressive, but true!

    As you know Greece and greek Goverment did not recognize state MACEDONIA. Several Colleagues asked Prof. Bourkas how in a 50-papers IASTED conference inside Greece, you can have 2 papers
    from MACEDONIA and advertize the program on your site. Bourkas told that I did not check the Proceedings at all so "I am innocent". Means that from Greek national point of view this guy is innocent. But what about from the scientific point of view. Is he innocent? He had to check the quality of 50 papers. He confessed that he did not read any paper.
    This email was sent to Prof. Papageorgiou from another non-greek professor working in Greece.
    It is a real email and has been published in several blogs in Greece.

    If Professor Bourkas had checked at least the abstracts of the papers, then he would have understood that 2 papers came from a Country that Greece refuses until now his existence.

    So, Bourkas claimed that he did not read anything!

    This is the email

    Dear Mr. Papageorgiou

    I wonder how a scientific conference organized by a Professor of the Technical Univ. of Athens with several greek Professors
    in the committee did not see in a program of 50 scientific articles 2 papers from "MACEDONIA"

    Finally, is there any control in this conference?
    What is the role of a Professor of Technical University of Athens as Chairman?
    Is decorative?
    Was this IASTED conference a conference with reviewers or not?
    They have several professors from Greece in the program committee; if they do not check the countries of the authors,
    do they check the scientific quality of the papers?
    What is the Responsibility of Prof. Bourkas?
